Steve Winter

Specialized in photography of mammals, big cats are his main subject. Sleeping in a tent for six months -40 below zero tracking snow leopards or trapped in quicksand in the world largest tiger reserve. Part of the job right? Steve feels we have a great responsibility not only to show and excite the readers about the natural world, but about its fascinating people and cultures as well. Above all, he wants to give the readers of National Geographic  and others what he always wanted; a front row seat next to the photographer and writer, part of the team along for the adventure. ‘He wants to give people a reason to care’.

By this all he won a lot of trophies; BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year, BBC Wildlife Photojournalist of the Year, two times the Picture of the Year International’s Global Vision Award, again two times the first price World Press Photo category ‘nature story’ and a lot more!

He made his dream come true, and that’s why he says he has the most beautiful job in the world.
